The “TDL-4″ botnetPublished by dante on 30-Jun-2011 13:59 (160 reads)
The next big target for feds should be this big bastard of a botnet.
Kaspersky Labs is the only software vender to date with a solution for this malware generated giant.
The “TDL-4″ botnet now has more than 4.5 million infected PCs running on it and is the “most sophisticated threat” to computer security today, according to Kaspersky Labs researcher Sergey Golovanov.
Kaspersky’s anti-virus software identifies the botnet as TDSS. “TDSS uses a range of methods to evade signature, heuristic, and proactive detection, and uses encryption to facilitate communication between its bots and the botnet command and control center,” “TDSS also has a powerful rootkit component, which allows it to conceal the presence of any other types of malware in the system.”
The TDL-4 botnet was first seen in 2008, and as it affects the MBR (master boot record) it's very difficult to detect.
It also has its own “anti-virus” that prevents other botnets from taking it over.
